THQ Nordic announced today it’s acquired the rights to the 2012 fantasy RPG, Kingdoms of Amalur: Reckoning. It was created by the now defunct 38 Studios, a game company founded by Curt Schilling and which the former Red Sox pitcher eventually ran into the ground. The game was good though.

I worked on that game for two years and was excited for our early prototypes of the sequel and the MMO.

I’d be just fine playing the original on Switch!
